Relief for Richmond Neck Pain Stemming from Your Job

How many times do we refer to something as a pain in the neck? Ever call your job a pain in the neck? (Be honest! Johnson Chiropractic won’t tell your boss!) Certain work tasks could well be a pain in the neck…factually. Some easy exercises and Richmond chiropractic care can relieve your neck pain gently and successfully.


Researchers have a formal name for your job’s pain in the neck problem - work-related neck-shoulder pain. Adding motor control training and ergonomic workspace modification counsel for workplace motions and postures lead to positive and sustainable advantage in reducing shoulder pain and neck pain. (1) Adding stretching exercises to the daily routine lessened neck and shoulder pain and improved neck function and quality of life for office workers with chronic moderate-to-severe neck pain or shoulder pain. This study reported that the extra training in how to do neck and shoulder stretches twice daily every work day (5 days a week) really helped in the month long program. Further, those who performed the exercises less than 3 times per week reported less improvement than those who did them more than 3 times a week. Performing the neck and shoulder exercises better improved neck function and these patients’ quality of life scores. And this study was with chronic neck pain and shoulder pain patients, those who have experienced neck and shoulder pain for more than three months and ranked their pain as 5 or more on a a 10 point scale with 10 as the number for the worst pain. (2) Imagine what benefit these kinds of exercises could do for early stage neck and shoulder pain office-working patients!
